Filming Your Video
As you film your video, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Start by stating your first name, your hometown and your occupation. Anonymous videos will not be shared.
- Your video should be about your own personal experiences and the experiences of those close to you. Don’t be afraid to express what you’ve experienced or how you feel, as long as you are respectful. Your opinions and feelings are important to getting our message across. If you don’t know where to start, use the questions below for inspiration.
- Be aware of your surroundings and try to film in a quiet place that will allow you to capture good audio quality. Be close enough to the camera so that you’re easy to hear, and try not to move around too much.
- Your video may be shared with thousands of other people. Make sure that what you say is what you want others to hear. You’ll be required to sign a release when you upload this video, and full details about how your content can be used are included there.
Having Trouble Deciding What to Say? Get Inspired!
It’s okay if you’re not sure what your video should be about. If you’re wondering where to start, try answering any of these questions:
If you’re an energy worker:
- How long have you been working in the energy industry? How many of your friends and family also work in the industry?
- How do you feel the work you do contributes uniquely to the success of your company and the industry?
- What concerns do you have about how you and your coworkers might be affected by government proposals that negatively impact the energy industry?
- How has working in the energy industry changed your life?
If you’re an energy consumer:
- How do you feel that government proposals could impact the availability and affordability of energy for consumers like you?
- How would your family deal with changes in energy costs or availability?
- Why do you think it is important to protect energy jobs?
- How important do you think oil and natural gas are to America’s energy future?
- What changes would you like to see in America’s energy policies?
